Short Talk:

Man-gasm Alert: AirAsia Boss Tony Fernandes has started his own blog at tonyfernandesblog.com. In his third blog entry, he wrote, "Pictures tell a million words and learning from people like KennySia, I will try to add some photos with my post."

What an honour to be mentioned by the man himself. Thank you, Tony!

Prelude To Tiger Translate London

Passport - checked. Pound sterlings - packed. Travel guide to London - read.

Yes, I am jetting off to London to escape the recent spate of ISA arrests, learn about "agriculture" and perhaps drink some beer in the process.

No lah, I'm lying. I'm just going to London to drink beer, attend an arts festival, enjoy live music and look at artists from different parts of the world coming together to squeeze their collective creative juices.

20080913-4.gif

The festival I'll be attending in London is called Tiger Translate.

Tiger Translate is an initiative by Tiger Beer to showcase the work of the best undiscovered artists from Asia in the fields of visual art, graffiti, photography, music, fashion and illustration.

Tiger Translate Auckland

Previously, this festival was held across the world at such luminous global cities as New York, Berlin and Beijing. London is their seventh stop thus far.

Tiger Translate Berlin

But there is one thing that sets this festival apart from the rest. The essence of Tiger Translate is the intense focus of cross-cultural collaboration between East and West, and an opportunity for the Asian artists to work with high profile international artists in their respective fields.

Pure Evil's (UK) intepretation of Heath Ledger's The Joker

The way it works is like this.

A couple of weeks before going to London, up-and-coming artists from Asian countries were introduced to their more well-established counterparts from the international arena.

20080913-10.jpg

Udishma Kumar for India submitted this entry and got himself selected as a Tiger Asian Kinetic Artist (AKA) for Tiger Translate London


The two artists would NOT have met face to face. Instead, they have to communicate via e-mail to discuss how to transform something ordinary like a sofa, a fridge, or a lamp into extraordinary pieces of art.

Imagine a street artist from Mongolia teaming up with a sculptor from Denmark, or perhaps a computer graphic animator from China producing a music video for a UK rock band.

20080913-1.jpg

An Australia-China collaboration that fetched a cool price tag of USD$10,000!

The Asian and international artists are only gonna meet each other four days before the public showcase when they all fly in and gather at the host city of London. Then, with the limited amount of time and possibly language barrier that they have, the two artists must work through day and night to complete their collaborative artwork in time for the grand finale.

Kinda like me finishing my last minute assignments back in Uni.

20080913-3.jpg

Street art by Monorex (UK), one of the international artists

A stellar line-up of British artists have already been introduced, featuring EINE, Monorex, Hicalorie and PureEvil. They are set to collaborate with unknown Asian artists from China, Mongolia, India and Singapore found through a series of intense competition over the past few months. The artists will finish their work in front of a live audience on the night of the grand finale. Meanwhile a rock band and DJs will crank up the party mood.

20080913-5.jpg

Normally art fests are held inside some snobbishly pretentious art gallery right? Well, not this one. :)

Of all places, the grand finale of Tiger Translate London will gonna be held inside an abandoned CARPARK at the fashionable district of Shoreditch, London.

20080913-6.jpg

This unusual venue is where the artists will showcase their finished artwork, a reflection their intepretation of East-meets-West. Then we can all drink Tiger Beer, admire the artwork and listen to live music. There are gonna be some fun stuff to do as well, like creating a mosaic effect on a wall, and get this - leave a graffiti on the iconic black London cab!

20080913-15.jpg

If there are any kennysia.com readers in London, of course you guys can come down and join us at the event next Saturday. It's free of charge after all.

Besides, this is perhaps your only chance of vandalising a cab without going to jail for it.

20080913-7.jpg

The theme for Tiger Translate London is VOYAGE.

20080913-12.jpg

And it's about time for me to finish this entry and rush to the airport for my VOYAGE to London.

Funny that Kenny is leaving for UK at a time when Badawi is arresting anti-Malay bloggers in the land using the ISA. As a Western Malaysian Malay I am up to my neck with this bastard Kenny dragging the good name of UMNO through the mud. As Ahamd Ismail says people like that should be shot or disemboweled with a KRIS!

Unregistered

Yea Kenny is leaving to escape the ISA. Smart kenny!

Unregistered

Happy flying Mr Kenny! =D

Unregistered

Unregistered

I used to live there for a few years.

A lively bustling cosmopolitan city and definitely mor choices of beer compared to Malaysia :p

Unregistered

I went to the whole Tiger Translate thing in Guangzhou. It was kinda silly. Plus Tiger totally destroyed the bar that hosted the event by robbing the place of its own personality and posing Tiger propaganda on every available surface, including the floors!!! to top it off, tiger beer does not even taste that good.

Unregistered

I bet it is hard for you to go online in the London. In view of the lack of update. There are no free Hot Spot in London. Not even in Starbucks.

Hey Kenny, try walking around China Town in London. If you see a "model" sign on the door of any staircase leading up to first floor. Go right up and let me now how's like.

Waterfish

Unregistered

It is great and once in a life time experience to view an art culture show collaboration the East and West.
I wish that I could be there.....
Thanks Kenny for bringing it closer to us.
Awaiting your great report.

Unregistered

Hi Kenny, just picked up your web-site from a Goggle word search on Kuching Sarawak. Read your blog about Tigertranslate. Brought back a lot of memories - drinking Tiger Beer and using Tiger Balm for mosquito bites when I was in Kuching with the REME - Army 1962 and '63. I used to work in Great Eastern Street and park in that carpark. If your looking to find another nice city to visit look me up in Volgograd, Russia and keep the blogs coming - Great stuff!

Unregistered

Ay, Mr. Kenny.
thought you might be interested in a mini-political satire that i've drawn out cartoon-style...

Unregistered

Hey Kenny, complete copies of your post (with pics, links and comments) have been circulating by email. I received four such emails from different friends already. I foresee three problems...

1. You might get ISA-ed for no good reason (wait a minute, everyone get's ISA-ed for no good reason)....

2. You might get ISA-ed for something you did not do (no wait, that's not gonna work either...)

3. You're not credited in any of the emails (that ought to get you hopping)...

Peace
The Geek

Unregistered

Hey Kenny, just a note that your blog site is becoming increasingly slow at downloading. It takes forever to see your pictures and post these days and the wait sorta discourage readers. Am not sure if I'm the only one facing the problem but thought that you should know. Hope this can be corrected soon. Thanks!

Unregistered

interesting post.

Unregistered
